Kolkata, Nov 28 (UNI) All India Minority Forum (AIMF) chief Idris Ali, who remained in police lock-up after his arrest last week, was remanded to judicial custody till December 5 by a city court.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court heard his submission this afternoon when he was produced before the Bench on bail plea.
'' He was remanded to judicial custody till December five, '' the prosecution said.
Mr Ali was arrested from his central Kolkata residence last week on the charge of rioting, murder and causing violence during a demonstration to protest the Nandigram incident and demand deportation of exiled Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen from India.
The doctor-turned-writer Nasreen, 42, had been statying in a rented flat in the city's southern part for over three years on extended visa, expiring by mid-February in 2008.
When he was produced before the court last weekend, the court threw out his bail plea as the prosecution strongly opposed it.
Mr Ali was admitted to a state-run hospital on Sunday when he complained of abdominal problems and later he was discharged after a thorough check-up.
